Description
Enclosed letter came to his hands yesterday, arriving in last packet from England; hears Gates has sold his estate, trusts it is well sold and that interest of the money, with the interest on the debts due to Gates by the public would give him full scope for the enjoyment of old age; inquires when he shall see Gates, not supposing that he means to pass all his time in Virginia having friends here and in New York that expect a share of his company now and then; [Richard] Peters had gone to England, went reluctantly, and, he fancies, will return as soon as he can; his own time is fully occupied.
